Adopt South

Adopt South Logo

Adopt South was created as a Regional Adoption Agency in April 2019, combining the services of Hampshire County CouncilIsle of Wight CouncilPortsmouth City Council and Southampton City Council.

By joining our adoption services together, we have brought the best practice and experience from each of our four local authorities. This means it’s easier to match a child with an adopter in any of the councils.

It also means adopters, adoptive children and their birth families can use the combined services of the four authorities. It gives them the opportunity to come to events, speak to professionals or get post-adoption support from across Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton.

You can contact us on our single, central helpline on 0300 3000 011, or make an enquiry online.
